Re: Thanks to the Primavera Volunteers

Thanks to the volunteers indeed. It was great as usual.

 

I was torn between volunteering and riding. I didn’t finish the 100k last time and it was a personal challenge to finish this time. I did! Even with the two Fremont Paseo Padre hills at mile 60!

 

Next year I’ll volunteer. 😊

Subject: [public info] Thanks to the Primavera Volunteers

 

I have received feedback from many of the riders,, and one almost universal comments was what kind/helpful/cheerful/wonderful/numerous/caring/friendly/knowledgeable volunteers we had.  The ride would not have been a success without your efforts.  Thank you all for stepping up and covering two, or three shifts. 

 

Other than 3 paper cuts (one requiring a band-aid), there was only one injury.  That gentleman did finish the ride, checked in, and had a meal before getting checked out at the ER.  I did not hear of anyone getting lost, which was a testament to the route marking, signage, and course marshals.  And no one went home hungry, including the couple that rolled in after 6, with smiles on their faces and a meal waiting for them.  It takes a lot of effort to feed a thousand people.

 

For many, it was their first century ride.  They were elated.  

 

The only complaint I heard was about the wind for the last portion, and no one blamed FFBC.  We should all be grateful that today's weather did arrive a day early.  We were lucky with the weather and lucky to have such fine people supporting the ride.

 

Thank you
